Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

    Turkey dinner was delicious. The mushroom gravy was great over the turkey, potatoes and dressing. The cranberries were fresh and homemade and delicious. A little short staffed-luckily the water pitcher was close since I had to refill my own glass. Our waiter was very nice and friendly but was multitasking making drinks besides serving tables. Will come back for this meal it was great!

    I decided to treat out-of-town guests to Wild Fire, because of the location and price. I have been to Wild Fire many times pre pandemic, but not post. I am happy that the restaurant survived such a trying time for the restaurant business overall, but highly disappointed that a lot of my favorite menu items (i.e., lamb chops) are no longer on the menu - and other favorites are only on the menu certain days of the week. My guests were satisfied, but I wanted to leave the restaurant upon learning they no longer have my favorites. Otherwise, it was an ok experience. Bring back the oldies (but goodies)!

    We chose Wildfire bc our allergy dining group highly recommended them as being knowledgeable about handling food for those with severe allergies. They definitely made us comfortable and we we able to have a safe meal that was absolutely delicious. We were in town touring colleges and this was our son’s first steak house experience. Will absolutely come back.

    Birthday dinner while on vacation. Greeted by pleasant host and taken to a nice table. Waiter brought drinks and bread. Edgar, our server, was friendly and attentive, answered questions about the menu. He came by several times during dinner to refill glasses and to make sure everything was OK. The filet medallions, the special of the evening was absolutely delicious! We both order it and it came out perfectly done. The triple layer chocolate cake was fabulous! Wish we lived closer, but sadly, we don’t. Great evening thanks to Edgar’s suggestions and service.

    Disappointing. We had been to another branch of wildfire out in the suburbs and the menu was much more diverse. The food was much tastier and the decor was more upscale. I picked this for my birthday dinner because I remember the other meal so fondly but was very disappointed.

    Came here to celebrate a cousin's birthday and the food was great. The host was very friendly. The server was rude and just starting putting food down in front of us without saying what it was. When asked what steak is this(temperature wise), he started to get irate with me saying wait until I'm done I'll explain. Yes we know what we ordered, but for him to just sit plates down assuming they belong us was unprofessional. Now I'm breathing over someone else food at my table because he didn't ask nor explain what he was sitting down in front of us. With COVID going on, even if it wasn't COVID I do not want to eat the food that someone has breath on and pick at. When asked for the manager he came straight to the table and started taking up for the server before hearing my complaint and then justifying how the server yelled. Never Again will I spend 400.00 or any amount of money here.

    When we lived n Chicago over 20 years ago, we went to this restaurant allot and always enjoyed it. We came back for quick trip with our teenage son as he is a real steak lover. Time has not been kind, and the removal of the fireplace was a disappointment. The food was Meh, the service was really great, and the front of house team is very friendly. This will not be on our schedule of restaurants we visits when we come back, and sad to even say this as we really loved this restaurant. If the food was better we would be back, but as has been said before, you cant go home again.
